Queen’s University Belfast students unveil special version of iconic DeLorean car
22 October 2015
Students at Queen’s University Belfast celebrated Back to the Future day in style this week as they unveiled a customised electric version of the iconic DeLorean car.
The project began in June 2013, with the University aiming to equip young engineers with the expertise needed to build the electric vehicles of the future. Back to the Future Day, celebrated on 21 October, featured the DeLorean which was built in the local Dunmurry factory and produced less than 9,000 of the cars, which are now collectors’ items due to the cult status of the film.
The fully restored DeLorean will be at the Ulster Musuem and project director Dr David Laverty said: “We took delivery of the car itself in September 2014 which is when the real conversion process began and the whole purpose is to inspire the next generation of electrical engineers, so we are leaning on the celebrity status of the car and the fact that it was built in Belfast.”
